    Today I went out after a snow fall from the other day. It's been pretty easy riding on the ice for the last month, but cover it with snow and look out. All the ruts created from the snowmobiles, snowshoes, and hikers are now hidden under the snow. It's impossible to pick up the ruts and at times they can just throw the bike in a total different direction, or grab your wheel right out from under you. Thank goodness I have cat like reflexes (lol) because it threw me 6 times, but I landed on my feet each time. The hardest ride of the season, but I had so much fun can't wait for tomorrow.

    Cycling in the snow is a difficult but very interesting challenge, which is really what I still do!

    It is a great workout, and for me beats the heck out of the indoor trainer.

    I agree, though I've kinda let myself get out of the habit over the winter. Sadly, all I ever get is rain.
